Mintio is a visual artist born in Singapore. Trained as a photographer at the School of Art Design and Media in Nanyang Technological University, Mintio has been actively creating works and participating in exhibitions both locally and abroad. “Table for One” was Mintio’s first public venture into a participatory project, in which she dined with people she found eating alone over a span of one year. Following that in 2010, she participated in an artist-in-residence program hosted by MES 56, a photography collective in Jogjakarta. The project “The Wax on Our Fingers” was the outcome of her residency, where she had produced batik-portraits of batik makers from the village of Kebon Indah together with fellow artist Budi Agung Kuswara (Kabul). Mintio is currently based in Bali to program and facilitate activities at Ketemu Project Space as Director.

“Our Lake of Imagination” is a unique art and community project created in collaboration with artists from Ketemu Project and Brack, together with the children of Kommunitas Anak Alam participating from Kintamani, Bali. This installation was the outcome of a five-month-long journey. It was also featured at the SEA Games 2015.

Mintio is also Artist Lead in Indonesia for Brack.
